    Welcome to Bickford of Burlington, the areas longest running “Premiere Assisted Living and Memory Care Community.” You have to see, smell, taste and feel Bickford of Burlington to understand why we are the Tri-States choice for assisted living.

    At Bickford of Burlington, enriching happiness in our residents’ lives is not just something we do 5 days a week/8 hrs. a day, but 7 days a week/24 hrs. a day. Our caregivers truly believe that this is the residents’ home by providing them the opportunity to continue to be independent and stay active in groups and clubs that keep them active. Bickford of Burlington has become the meeting place for several Bridge clubs, group meetings, parties, etc. There is never a typical day at Bickford of Burlington as we encourage our residents to “live” their lives the way “they” choose to live.

    Meeting and personalizing the individual needs of those looking for assistance allows our resident’s the ability to remain as independent as possible enhancing their lives with encouragement from our caregivers to help create long lasting memories.
